Massage therapy is the practice of manually manipulating the soft tissues (skin, muscles, tendons, and ligaments) of the body using various types of touch therapy techniques applied with different levels of pressure. Pressure levels range from light and gentle strokes to deep pressure in a focused area. The use of lotions, creams, and oils allows for smooth movements to prevent skin irritation, which also helps nourish and hydrate the skin. These manual manipulations may combine any of the following techniques:
- Gliding strokes
- Friction (circular pressure movements)
- Deep focused pressure
- Trigger point therapy
- Passive or active stretching/bending
What Can I Expect During My Massage?
We understand that for those who have never had a massage, the initial experience may feel a little awkward, but we’re here to help put you at ease. We want you to feel comfortable and relaxed the minute you walk through our door. Our friendly client care team will greet you and get you started on any necessary paperwork to better inform your treatment plan. Then, your massage therapist will walk you to one of our comfortable treatment rooms where they will consult with you about your health history, any injuries you have, your wellness goals, areas of concern, and any additional information that may be pertinent to your massage session.
After a brief consultation, your massage therapist will tell you whether to lay face-down or face-up on the massage table before leaving the room. You can undress to a level that is most comfortable for you. We recommend undressing down to your undergarments so that your therapist can fully access your neck, shoulders, and back without any obstacles. Your therapist will use precise draping techniques so that the areas where they are not working are covered by a sheet and a blanket. Once your session is complete, your massage therapist will step out of the room to give you time to get dressed. After your massage, your therapist may recommend after-care practices such as stretching to help keep your muscles flexible and relaxed.
*We always follow best practices to ensure your privacy and comfort. Please feel free to talk to your therapist about any concerns or requests you may have.
